Here is a little preview of the project I have been working on in my spare time. It’s designed to use as many spare parts left over after Taz modifications as I could. It’s patterned loosely after the 3dpburner project, though I didn’t actually end up using any of his parts. This will be released open source as soon as I finish up the final assembly and make sure everything works.
Top crossbar is an Openbuilds 20mmx20mm extrusion and mini wheels, lower rods are 10mm TAZ rods. The lower crossbar is actually a drawer separator from a steelcase filing cabinet that shouldn’t be too hard to find. Baseplates are large cutting boards.
Should be operational later in the week. We are building a nice safety enclosure with lockouts and emergency stop buttons for it to live in as well, which is currently offsite so no pictures of it yet.
- Freehand cardboard burning art. I plan to auction them off to the lowest bidder!
- Laser detail. It’s a 12mm 445nm blue laser diode in a copper housing inside a heat sink. That heat sink is in turn inside a custom 3d printed cooling duct with a 40mm fan on top.

- Gantry motion - Look Ma, no Z Axis!
- Main Frame and Gantry. Wiring remains a work in progress…
